The Victoria University Coastal Ecology Laboratory, on the south coast of Wellington, New Zealand

The Victoria University Coastal Ecology Laboratory (VUCEL) is a research facility of the School of Biological Sciences at Victoria University of Wellington that supports research in coastal ecology and marine biology. Located at the southern end of the North Island of New Zealand, in Island Bay on Wellington's south coast, approximately 8 km south of the University’s main campus, the laboratory overlooks Cook Strait and the exposed rocky reef systems of the Taputeranga Marine Reserve.

VUCEL is known in Māori as Te Toka Tū Moana, which means "the surf-beaten rock that stands firm in the ocean". The Māori name is both a description of the VUCEL building (with natural design elements that give it the appearance of rising from the rocks of the Wellington south coast), and it is representative of the strong connections between land and sea that are the focus much of VUCEL-supported research.

VUCEL is a purpose-built research facility designed by Pynenburg & Collins Architects Ltd with the internal laboratory spaces designed by Labworks Architecture Ltd, the research facility was completed in early 2009 and comprises an 816m² research space that includes 113m² of science laboratories, 168m² of wet laboratory facilities supplied with filtered and unfiltered flow-through seawater, and 161m² of oceanfront office space for up to 30 VUCEL research students, academics, and support staff. VUCEL provides a staging area for field-based research programmes along the Wellington south coast and surrounding regions. The lab maintains a small fleet of research vessels and vehicles, SCUBA diving facilities, research infrastructure, and instrumentation for field-based ecological research. VUCEL provides logistic support to research programmes in coastal ecology that are conducted in the Wellington region and throughout New Zealand, the Indo-Pacific region, and Southern Ocean.

Victoria University first proposed a marine lab along the south coast of Wellington in the 1920s but it was not until the 1960s that a lab was established. This predecessor to VUCEL, known as the Island Bay Marine Lab, occupied a building that was originally constructed as a shark liver oil processing plant by the Glaxo Company. This 1950’s structure supported the marine biology programme of Victoria University until 2007, when it was demolished to make way for the new purpose-built coastal ecology laboratory.

King Edward Technical College

DunedinChemistry

King Edward Technical College is the former name for a school and technical college in Dunedin, New Zealand, which was established as the Dunedin Technical School in 1889 when the Caledonian Society instigated night education classes. Originally run from Great King Street, it offered classes in carpentry, chemistry, cookery, domestic economy, typewriting, and woodcarving, with courses expanding by 1895 to include dressmaking, navigation, and plumbing. The school moved to Moray Place in 1897, where it stayed until 1914. In 1914 a new structure in Upper Stuart Street was opened, and in 1921 the Dunedin School of Art was amalgamated with the school. It was at this point that the school changed its name to honour the late King Edward VII. The college's first principal was Angus Marshall.

By 1955 the school was the largest in the country, with a total roll of 2,500 (half of them in day classes) and over 250 classes. By this time, the college included a day school, the Dunedin Technical High School, the Dunedin School of Art, Senior School of Commerce, and an Evening School. In February 1966 the tertiary arm of the college officially adopted the name Otago Polytechnic and eventually moved to a new site, initially in York Place, close to the Upper Stuart Street site, but later moved to Union Street, close to the University of Otago. Since 1974 the secondary component has been located on a new site close to the Polytechnic, renamed as Logan Park High School.

The prominent and imposing old King Edward Technical College buildings (King Edward Court) on Stuart Street are now used for a multitude of purposes. The main building has a Category I listing with the New Zealand Historic Places Trust, registration number 4712.

Dunedin association football team Dunedin Technical was formed by alumni of the institution, and was originally known as King Edward Technical College Old Boys.

University of Otago College of Education

Education, Educational ResearchHistoryDentistry, Oral SurgeryMedicine, General, Internal

The University of Otago College of Education is a teacher-training facility in Dunedin, New Zealand, run as part of the University of Otago since 2007. Formerly called Dunedin College of Education (Te Kura Akau Taitoka, also known as Dunedin Teachers' College), the college was founded in 1876, and has the longest continuous history of teacher education in New Zealand. The Dunedin College of Education's motto was maxima debetur pueris reverentia (the child deserves the greatest respect).

The college operates from its own campus close to, but not contiguous with, the main university campus, opposite Logan Park in Dunedin North. Between them, the University of Otago, Dunedin College of Education, Otago Polytechnic, Otago School of Medicine, and Otago School of Dentistry form one large extended campus which covers some 80 hectares of Dunedin North. The college shares some facilities with the polytechnic, which lies immediately to its northwest.

The college's location in Dunedin is significant, as that city has long had a history of education pioneering in New Zealand, with the country's first university, first medical school, first kindergarten, and first single-sex high school for girls.

Initially, the college taught primary teachers, in close collaboration with the university. Teaching students made up a significant proportion of the university's early students, and it started providing its own courses in education from 1905.

Since the 1970s, the college expanded its programmes, inaugurating degree and diploma courses in early childhood, primary, and secondary education. A similar expansion of courses was undertaken by the university, which offered doctoral courses in education as part of its liberal arts courses. From 1976, the university and college offered a joint Bachelor of Education course. This co-operation continued until tertiary education reforms of the mid 1990s, after which the university offered its own B.Ed. degree course.

As a result of these changes, the Dunedin College of Education and University of Otago agreed to a merger, with the college becoming the University of Otago College of Education in early 2007 and the college has full access to The Bill Robertson Library and its major collections.

University of Otago Faculty of Law

LawPhilosophy

The Faculty of Law is one of the professional schools at the University of Otago. Otago is New Zealand's oldest law school, lectures in law having begun in 1873. The Faculty of Law is currently located in the Richardson Building at Otago's main campus in the city of Dunedin.

The Faculty of Law awards the degrees of Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.), Master of Laws (LL.M.), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.). A Bachelor of Laws Honours program also exists and is reserved for approximately the top 10% of LL.B. students. In 2007, the Law Faculty had approximately 800 equivalent full-time students. Approximately 200 students are in each of second, third, and fourth-year law, and over 700 students are enrolled in the first-year LAWS 101 course, which is a prerequisite to being admitted into full-time legal studies as a second year law student. Approximately 60% of the law students are female.

The first law lecturer at Otago was Sir Robert Stout, who went on to serve as Attorney-General, Prime Minister, and Chief Justice of New Zealand. Otago's law library is named the Sir Robert Stout Law Library.

Mark Henaghan is the current Dean of the Faculty of Law. The Faculty is composed of 27 full-time academic staff members, with 10 full professors, 3 associate professors, 10 senior lecturers, and 4 lecturers.

The faculty leads the Human Genome Research Project, sponsored by the New Zealand Law Foundation, which considers issues in the regulation of human genome-based technologies in New Zealand, on a legal and ethical basis.
